Stock 2nd gen CRX HF had 62 HP @ 4500 RPM. Insight (without IMA) had 67 HP @ 5700 RPM. This CRX, like most, has been swapped.

I'm sure the swap is possible, but it wouldn't be a drop-in. I've often wondered if the IMA motor can be removed if a Fit flywheel/clutch is used. If left in place, the IMA motor can be used as an alternator.
